2: I am from silver Chopsticks, from ceramics and (Korean traditional clothing). I am from the clay tiled- roofs and sliding wooden doors of pagodas I am from the (rose of Sharon), the National flower of Korea I am from Korean New years and Korea, from Tony and Sunny and Hahn. I am from the playful clashes between blood relatives and gifts passed down from one generation of the family to another. From Intelligence and persistence. I am from Christianity born parents. I'm from Seoul, descendant of the Hahn dynasty, kimchi and miso. From the hard working entrepreneur, the never-give-up attitude I am from the walls and boxes waiting to be reopened, waiting to show their priceless value.
4: Sometimes I brag, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I nag, sometimes I won’t. Depend on how the day blows, I might even gloat It really just depends on the flow of the boat I’m not (the average) stereotypical Asian And I ain’t some kid who can do everything. But I learned to just relax and go with the flow
5: Because I am who God meant me to be. I’m not the average stereotypical Asian My worth is not determined by the path that I go No matter what i`m doing I will always be Jonathan Hahn
6: A fresh breeze blows over to my nose Spraying fresh new smells like a hose And grabbing her arm, pulling Bringing her to the kitchen, drooling In the oven, she hears something crackle The smell is something like an apple Looking in, she sees a great sight A tan apple pie of delight And walking to the left with a loop She sees a platter full of fruit She says, “its kiwi I`ve just seen!” For it is the color of green! Walking to the nearby ladle She sees a dead, seasoned chicken on the table And she`s not so surprised To feel her hunger starts to rise and with that, she sat with a napkin on her lap and ate to her hearts content and to her room she then went
8: When Language arts comes around, It`s time to get serious and get down. Pick a desk and have a seat Writing essays nice and neat Reading novels is a blast Making connections makes it fast Vocab, grammar, words and gums Language arts with Mrs. Glenn is FUN!
